Online Composite Material Training Course

About The Course

4 lectures of 1.5 hours duration course (6 hours in total) are proposed and will provide an introduction of composites. It will describe the basic functionalities of composites, the various engineering processes used to design, analysis, manufacture, and test them. It will go on presenting the current methods of design and analysis of composite structures. The course will provide throughout the course detailed examples of case studies that have reached the industry to illustrate the challenges that were overcome for successful design of advanced composite structures.

Who Should Attend?

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations’ managers, Applied Scientists and Technologists interested in design of lightweight composite material & structure. Engineers, managers and scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.
